Does GOD Intervene In Human Affairs, Particularly Politics?
Greetings Everyone, and Peace to YOU and YOURS!
For a time, I often wondered if GOD actually interfered (on occasion) in various human affairs? When I was convinced that from time-to-time HE has, and in the same frequency still does, I am further convinced that HIS interventions are SELECTIVE, and are intended to offset the "balances of powers" that may directly conflict with HIS time-frame towards the finality of HIS recorded prophecies. Today, such intervention has become necessary to offset Satan's own interventions up to this point. Obviously, Satan is the 'god' and/or 'ruler' of this system.. we understand that! As the ruler, Satan's hands are always involved in our affairs, and NOT to our GOOD. Therefore, to keep us from destroying ourselves prior to GOD'S selective timetable, HE intervenes on our behalf to offset Satan's progressive measures. Trump, as well as all political parties, especially the Republican Party, though getting a small taste now, are soon to feel the full impact of GOD'S direct interventions. Treason and Impeachments will become the battle cries. PEACE!
I believe God does intervene in human affairs but in specific circumstances that he chooses and for the reasons only he knows. My wife went through some very difficult medical issues that her doctors never felt she would survive, but she did. There's no doubt in our minds and many of the doctors that God had his hand in her recovery. No known reasons, just true God Things.
Though God has given man 'free will', He does intervene in our affairs if we ask Him to. To know more about how all spiritual beings influence the lives of people everyday check out this website: http://invisible-spiritual-forces.webs.com/
...to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men. Dan 4:17
And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth. Exo 9:16
You asked a very tricky question and therefore it has to be addressed very carefully and holistically and therefore my answer is going to be quite lengthy. 1st of all, you are right when you claim that satan is the god and/or ruler of this system (2 cor 4:4) Satan is the god of this world order of sin, darkness and evil. The Bible tells us that everyone who sins is of the devil because the devil sins from the beginning (John 8:44) meaning satan is the originator of sin. The Bible tells us thus of God: God is light and in him is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). It also tells us that God was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is "no" sin.
